Someone contacted me that makes patterns for doing embroidery, and is wondering if I can print her patterns on the fabric with ink that will wash out when they put in the washer after doing the embroidery. She says she knows the ink exists so I'm wondering if anyone knows anything about this stuff and where I can get it? Thanks
She says she can't remember the name of the ink (go figure). It's ink that completely washes out when you wash it. It's basicallly so whomever is doing the embroidery can follow the pattern printed on it and then wash it out when they're done so you can't see that they just basically traced the image or whatever.
Sounds pointless to me (I mean embroidery can be digitized to remmeber the pattern, why screen it when you can scan<trace<digitize?), but I did know a guy who printed with a green dish soap with a high mesh. Once washed, the soap washed out. he did it for an event that wanted the sponsors to wash out after the event.
